The High Impact Leadership Project is not a typical leadership program. It is a highly interactive and innovative program focused on strengthening emotional intelligence and dimensional leadership agility.

The void in the availability of leadership-based development programs is hurting organizations. Too often, people are promoted into positions of leadership based on functional skills and industry knowledge but lack development around key components of leadership. Through our work with leaders and as leaders, we have gained insight into the positive impact of emotionally-intelligent and agile leaders.

We decided to create a solution –the High Impact Leadership Project (HILP). HILP was developed with the intention of connecting and developing individuals committed to building their leadership prowess to strengthen workplaces and communities.

The High Impact Leadership Project is led by seasoned business leaders and certified executive coaches, Lisa Williams and Marian Guinn, out of their passion for helping leaders and organizations become peak performers. The High Impact Leadership Project is designed to further enhance participants’ emotional intelligence and leadership agility.
